Hey guys, I was on LD4all a while back but then school took over my LDs . Now I’m determined to get back into LDing permanently. I had my first LD since I started my recent attempts earlier this week.
I woke up at about 1am and I felt quite thirsty, so I got up and drank some water. I had recently read about “resisting the roll-over signal” so I decided to try something when I got back to bed. I got comfortable and refused to roll over, even when I began to feel uncomfortable. I repeated to myself, “I’m dreaming… I’m dreaming…” continuously. I’m not 100% sure if I lost consciousness or not, but the next thing I remember is lying in bed, and just knowing that I was dreaming. I got up and did an RC and it worked.
The interesting thing to me is that I seemed to know I was dreaming from the get-go, and I didn’t experience the “rush” when you usually become lucid in a DILD. The LD was also quite hard to control, although I felt very lucid.
So what do you guys think? Was it a WILD? Was it the autosuggestion that worked? It felt waaaay to easy, and I don’t feel like autosuggestion works that well with me.
Wow, sockpuppetting bots. I swear, they have a new trick up their sleeves every time I meet them.
T3RM1N4TOR, some call those dreams “lucid wakings”, and it’s very cool to have them but some argue that in some dreams there’s too much realism to exert some good active control, so I suggest using the passive form instead
Hmm I will definitely check that out. It’s interesting I also ended up doing quite a few RCs to make sure I really was dreaming because it was very realistic. I guess that’s why I had very little control - part of me was unsure whether this was real or not.
